Striker to rejoin first team training at Chelsea following bust-upPublished January 17, 2017
Diego Costa rejoined Chelsea’s first team training on Tuesday after a bust-up with manager Antonio Conte.
The Brazillian-born forward was originally banished from the clubs training ground after falling out with Conte over an offer from the Chinese Super League, but Costa took part in first-team training on Tuesday afternoon.
It had been reported that the player received an offer from China thought to be worth £30m a year, which he then attempted to use as leverage to obtain a better deal at Chelsea.

Having spent the past couple of days training on his own as well as missing the win over Leicester, Costa could now be set to return to the Chelsea side this weekend as he chases down the Premier League golden boot.
